Nikki Attkisson | Last Updated : October 7, 2022

The US Drug and Justice Enforcement Department have released a press note that 15000 fentanyl pills have been discovered in Lego boxes in New York City. According to a recent update, there is already an operational fentanyl organizational gang.

This gang is participating in the illegal trafficking of this dangerous drug which has already been banned by almost every country due to the negative and detrimental side effects of this drug on the human body. 

The pills are so colorful that one can easily get confused and mistake these pills for some random candies and other elements. It was only last month that the fentanyl pills were recovered; hence, this time, a very large quantity of these pills have been seized. 

Updates About The Scam

A press release was given by the department that revealed that these pills had been distributed in the city through the lego boxes to avoid early detection. On these boxes, codes like “M” and “28” were printed so that the weight of the pill could be determined.

This seizure has been the biggest so far, and it shows the efficiency of the public departments, which are on their toes to prevent the spread of drugs at any cost.

This drug, called fentanyl, is not at all healthy for the human body, and the consumption of the same has been restricted across many areas.

The illegal trafficking of this drug is not only against the laws but also against the international protocols signed by the country of the United States of America.

What does the government think to do about this?

The government is ready to initiate a new round of investigation before it is too late. This is very useful because it will try to catch sight of the prevailing factors nearby.

The government is exploring new ways through which these rackets could be burst in the minimum amount of time. The level of compensation would be very high this year because the quantity that has been illegally imported and exported by the country is far beyond the previous experiences.

Therefore, the government is willing to set an example for other people to avoid these activities as soon as possible before it is too late. 


The investigation concerning the drugs that have been captured is underway, and it will be responsible for bringing an additional perspective in this regard.

The need to get the best facilities is felt, and this is essential for getting efficiency in the detection process because as soon as they are caught, there would be lesser chances of spreading to different places.

There is also a risk that the increase in the distribution would increase the number of drug addicts in the town. The government is very particular about these moves, and this is going to be a part of the bigger plan of governance wherein these activities would be controlled at every cost. 


This can be concluded that security agencies have been installed at every nook and corner of the country in order to examine the movement of these drugs in the most secretive way.

The government is trying its level best to crack these associations as soon as possible before it is too late. This is helpful for bringing a better impact over a period of time in terms of law enforcement and other justice delivery mechanisms. This has basically become the need of the hour.
